Q. Why can't I hear any music playing? Cookie Recipes have no music.
Music Midi Files
The usual problem is that there are too many music players installed, and your computer don't know which music player to use. You may have erratic behavior if you have Quicktime installed. Problems include: Only playing 1-2 seconds of each song before quitting or garbled sound when playing.
Do the following:
(1)Launch Windows Control Panel
(2)Click on the Quicktime icon
(3)Using the pull-down menu select the Browser-Plugin option
(4)In the Window, click on the option MIME settings
(5)In the next Window, scroll down until you locate lines that begin with "MIDI"
(6)Click each of the lines until the "+" disappears
(7)Click OK and close the other Windows
Windows media player will now be responsible for playing MIDI (music) files.
This should solve the problem, if not you may have another unrelated configuration problem with your computer.
Most everyone uses Windows media player. The built in windows media player is all that most people ever need. When using the Windows media player for your sound. To adjust the sound to receive midi's and mp3s. ( newer version) First click on the tools menu on the top bar of your player, ( Built in version ) Use the views menu instead, then click on the options and then click on the formats tab. You will need to make sure that all the boxes are checked for all the types of music files. Do select all. This will fix crackly, and poor quality sound. If this fails, then change all your setting to not play any sounds, and try again.

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.
However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.
She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!
Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
Note: For you people who have never read a recipe before,
(an’ I know you’re out there)
here are what some abbreviations mean.
c.= cup (what else?)
tsp. = teaspoon
Tbsp.= Tablespoon (notice this one is always capitalized)
lt. br. = light brown (as in sugar)
lg. = large (as in eggs)
granulated sugar = white sugar
(you know, the kind ya stir into your coffee each
mornin’ before your eyes will open).
